Listen and reassure them that coming to you was the right thing to do. Reassure them that you will not take any action without discussing it with them first.
Don't encourage retaliation to bullying - such as violent actions. Every child has a right to a safe environment in which to learn and play.
Discuss the situation with your child's teacher or Head teacher - or the lead adult wherever the bullying is taking place. Assure them that the bullying is not their fault and that they have family that will support them.
Find out what your child wants to happen next. Reacting that way has negative and unpredictable results- they may be hurt even further, and find that they are labelled as the problem. Help to identify the choices open to them; the potential next steps to take; and the skills they may have to help solve the problems. For more information on making a complaint about bullying, visit Making a complaint. Try and establish the facts. It can be helpful to keep a diary of events to share with the school or college.
Rather suggest that they walk away and seek help. It's important for children to avoid hitting or punching an abusive peer. Encourage your child to get involved in activities that build their confidence and esteem, and help them to form friendships outside of school or wherever the bullying is taking place.
Schools must have a behaviour policy which sets out the measures that will be taken to prevent all forms of bullying between pupils.
